No big deal, They will clearly wipe both of them. As long as they get 3rd place, they will be fine.

Lithuania and Argentina are both ranked higher than Croatia and Brazil. Lithuania has a big front-court that I think will give Spain trouble.

He's a troll that hates me, don't take his replies to me seriously, or anything international basketball related really.

Lithuania will be a problem if the refs let their frontcourt be physical with Pau. Pau is too soft but in FIBA, the refs don't allow the defense to breath on him. If he fights for the spot and they call quick fouls on Jonas, it's over. Spain just have too much NBA pedigree compare to Lithuania.

Are those times mentioned in the OP E.S.T.? So that would mean 12pm in Europe right?

Default USA mens basketball is embarassing their nation vs Scrubstralia right now

Scrubstralia up 24-17 in the first quarter.

USA getting a bunch of fouls for unsportsmanship.

KD and Paul George nowhere to be seen.

More like our C-team.

No Kawhi. No Curry. No Lebron. No Wade (still a beast in FIBA). We're missing a lot of super stars and great role players. Too many midtier stars with big egos in this squad. No leaders, Kyrie is probably the best natural leader on the team but he's still young. They are all following Durant and Melo's iso chucking, and they are not real leaders.

We should have sent a veteran PG with this crew. Even grandpa Andre Miller or Shaun Livingston would be enough.

Lowry and Kyrie are not pure PGs.
